Google Photos: Free unlimited storage is removed

Google has announced that it will soon start charging Google Photos storage as soon as users upload more than 15 GB to their accounts. For five years, Google has provided all accounts with free unlimited storage.

The change, which will take place on June 1, 2021, means that users will have to pay for extra storage space on Google One if they wish to upload photos beyond the free 15 GB limit.

The only users who will be excluded from this policy change are their users Pixel smartphone, who will still be able to upload "high quality" photos without any limit after June next year.

In the announcement, Google said that photos or the video uploaded to "high quality" before June 1, 2021 will not be counted in the 15 GB limit.

Other policy changes announced by Google were updates to Google Drive. Also, from June 1, 2021 onwards, the documents, the spreadsheets, Google workspace drawings and forms will start counting on storage space of users and will be included in the free storage limit of 15 GB.

According to Google, the changes policy is an attempt to "align our policies with industry standards".

Google also added that it will delete the data from inactive accounts in cases where users have not logged in to their accounts for at least two years.

Google also said that if users exceed the storage limit for two years, they may delete content in Gmail, the Drive and Photos. The company explained that it would notify users "many times" before attempting to remove any content.

Google introduced Google One two years ago, which has since become a separate brand for the Google Drive version for consumers, due to its different advantages and cheaper prices in storage data.

In July, Google announced that any user could benefit from the Google One backup feature, whether or not they have a paid subscription to Google One.
